This past weekend we had the pleasure of attending Pittco’s Iron Storm XIII Lan Party! This 42 hour event hosted about 150 gamers and started April 20 and concluded on April 22nd. They had official tournaments for Counter-Strike: Source, League of Legends, Starcraft II, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, Halo Reach and many more. Besides just the tournaments there was quite a lot of gaming going on as well as other fun. Read on to see what the event was all about!
We were actually a sponsor of the event so we had our own booth. We brought 3 of our systems to show off and we even had our videos playing on a display. A lot of people came up and talked to us.
Besides just us having a booth there were quite a few other companies that came out. Gamers Mobile Party brought their gaming setup which was pretty awesome.
Pittsburgh Technical Institute had a booth with a gaming PC that they were raffling off.
DarkThreads had a booth to show off some of their gear and they were selling it too!
When you go to LAN parties the one of the biggest things you look forward to is the prizes. This year Pittco had one of the largest prize displays that I had ever seen at a LAN Party. I did not get the official number, but I know they had well over $10,000 in prizes!!
Besides all of the prizes provided by the sponsors, they also had plaques for the winners of the tournaments. These looked great!
